'Girls' star Jemima Kirke kisses a girl in a new bridal fashion ad

That’s so Jessa.

Judging from the photos of Jemima Kirke in the Stone Fox Bride spring 2013 lookbook, it seems the actress is as uninhibited as the character she plays on the HBO series Girls.

Kirke and jewelry designer Pamela Love, both wearing minimalist boho bridal gowns from the label, are pictured as a same-sex couple locked in what appears to be a passionate post-nuptial embrace. (The lookbook also features a male couple dressed in lacy frocks.) Kirke also models solo, wearing nothing underneath a see-through dress called “The Jemima.”  READ FULL STORY

Beyonce is the new face of H&M

The rumors have finally (finally!) been confirmed: Beyoncé is the star of H&M’s summer 2013 campaign.

The first photo released by the clothing retailer shows Knowles in repose, lounging on a beach somewhere in the Bahamas dressed in a white button-down, short-shorts, and peep toe pumps, a single flower tucked behind her ear. She also models swimwear, including a bikini from the H&M for Water collection, which raises money for WaterAid.

Shot by photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in January, the spokeswoman is introduced as “Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M.”

“I’ve always liked H&M’s focus on fun affordable fashion. I really loved the concept we collaborated on to explore the different emotions of women represented by the four elements – fire, water, earth and wind,” Knowles — who, according to Vogue, gave her “personal input on the pieces seen in the campaign” — said in a statement. “It was a beautiful shoot on a tropical island. It felt more like making a video than a commercial.” Beyoncé’s latest single, “Standing in the Sun,” will be featured in the brand’s commercials.  READ FULL STORY

Keira Knightley's Chanel commercial deemed inappropriate for kids -- VIDEO

Banned-Chanel-ad_510x317.jpg

A Keira Knightley commercial deemed unfit for broadcast?

It may sound unlikely, but that’s just what happened in the U.K. this week when a viewer complained to the Advertising Standards Authority (the U.K.’s advertising regulator) after an old Chanel perfume commercial from 2011 aired during a TV showing of Ice Age 2. The ad, which includes scenes of Knightley undressing in bed and crawling towards the camera, was deemed inappropriate for children because it was “overtly sexual.”

That may seem like standard fare for perfume ads, which are typically pretty sexy, but the A.S.A agreed with the complaint, saying that the spot — directed by Joe Wright (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) — was too suggestive for children. It can still air on TV in the U.K., just not during programming directed at kids.

Much ado about nothing? Watch the scandalous ad below and judge for yourself: READ FULL STORY
